Be a Shepherd

‘Be a lamp, or a lifeboat, or a ladder. Help someone’s soul heal. Walk out of your house like a shepherd.’ Rumi

Every day gives us simple opportunities to be all of these things…. a lamp to someone who feels lost in the dark, a lifeboat to someone who needs our help, or a ladder to someone who needs to rise above the circumstances that life is bringing forward.

And on those days when we are not able to be any of these things for others, we need to be wise enough to surround ourselves with those who can be these things for us.
